Lauren Dickinson Clarke is a British illustrator and a designer of ink illustrated tableware. After 5 years of working in fashion for such big names as McQueen and Mary Katrantzou, Lauren rediscovered her passion for drawing and crafting, and so was born her first ceramic creation. Her abstract 'artware' collection comprises of imaginative visualisations which humorously bring to life everyday objects with surreal and dreamlike scenarios. After all, Lauren believes that a house should be so much more than just a home, it should be "the Gallery of you, your desires and your dreams". Each piece is made by hand and adorned with a hand-gilded 22 carat gold finish with love and devotion in England - in the heart of the ceramics industry - Stoke-on-Trent.
